PARK CITY, Utah (May 31, 2023) — As snowpack slowly shrinks from the peaks of Park City’s Wasatch Mountains, expert-level mountain bikers anxiously await access to the most highly sought-after technical and challenging-trails this summer season. Among Park City’s 500 miles of terrain are two of Park City’s most challenging, yet rewarding routes – the Wasatch Crest Trail atop the spine of the Wasatch Mountains and the Black Forest Trail dropping through Park City Mountain Resort.

“Park City’s vast interconnected cross-country, flow, and downhill trail system offers an unforgettable experience for any level of rider,” said a Scott House. “But, for experienced riders, or those looking to push their limits, our expert-level terrain offers unique technical challenges, steep downhills, and plenty of challenge whether it’s rocks, roots, steeps or jumps.”

Advanced riders who seek the most challenging and difficult terrain with equally satisfying vistas can lean into numerous expert-level trails, including the Wasatch Crest Trail and Black Forest Trail. Beloved by the locals, Wasatch Crest peaks at 9,882 feet elevation, while Black Forest crests at 9,099 feet. Whether riders choose to pedal or shuttle from Park City, ride all the way to Salt Lake City, or even start in Midway, the Wasatch Crest Trail can be 13 to more than 40 miles long. Regardless of distance, the trail delivers fast, flowy sections and highly technical ones including a 500+ feet long feature called The Spine. This challenging portion offers a quick 100-foot descent amidst steep, rocky terrain. The mile-long Black Forest, located at Park City Mountain Resort, offers aggressive switchbacks and a steep finish. New expert terrain will also be unveiled at Deer Valley Resort and Park City Mountain Resort this summer, adding even more miles of expert level, technical singletrack to ride into the fall.
